Timing Light with MSD 6a box

This , I know, is a problem for many guys with a captive discharge ignition but I have got to find a timing light that works with the 6a box. I just hooked up my MSD ignition and I like the response I got. Not much but the box didn't cost me much anyway. I would like to have a dial back light because I have a/c and power steering blocking most of my view of my timing marks. Maybe it is just me since I pieced together my brackets, but I can hardly see my timing marks at all. I can see zero just fine so I wanted to use a "DIAL BACK". But with the MSD I heard there are only a couple Timing Lights that will fit the bill.
I would love to hear what you guys are useing or what you recomend I can buy. I want to hear first hand experience. One day I may be getting rid of my A/C and switching to manual steering to free-up some HP. But for now I have got to come up with something and get a definate on where the heck my timing is. TIM

It has the "dial back" feature right? Only in a digital form, correct?
